choosing

When do you choose the thing that matters to your soul over the thing that will pay more? When do you go on faith? When do you take the good financial opportunity?

It's almost like a cosmic practical joke for me lately. I have recently posted about my job being taken off the table for next school year. This week my coworker was also reassigned. Now I had the option to stay in my current position, but only half-time. Think, think, think.

After being torn all week, I decided to stay where I am and hope for the best as far as making enough to help out around here with a missionary and other undeniable expenses. So today I formally accepted the job. When I got home I found out that I was offered a possible job from a family member that would bring in many many moons more money. It would be at a greater personal sacrifice as far as a commute and time away from command central here though, which needs to all be factored in.

Are you laughing along with me?

I hope the decision you make is something that makes you happy in all ways that matter. Hard decision. I don't envy you.

Glad the second offer came in second. Both in chronology and priority. You are where you belong.

But the universe has an uncanny knack for proffering up ironies...

Tough call, if you ask me. What did you decide?
